The Tennessee Volunteers are the No. 1 team in the country, but they’ll have their hands full on Tuesday night when they pay a visit to the South Carolina Gamecocks.
The Gamecocks may not be ranked, but they’re an impressive 5-1 in SEC play and have already taken down the likes of Auburn and Mississippi State.
As you can see in the video below, the Gamecocks are feeling confident in their chances to win on Tuesday night, bringing out 2019 QB signee Ryan Hilinski to announce a blackout for the game:
🚨 Special message for The Cockpit 🚨 @ryan_hilinski “We’re about to bury the number one team in the nation… and you wear BLACK to a funeral!”

“We’re about to bury the No. 1 team in the nation,” Hilinski said. “You wear black to a funeral, so it’s a blackout. Students, wear black. Go crazy. Gamecock Nation, we need you. Spurs up!”
Can the Gamecocks hand the Vols their first SEC loss? Tuesday night’s game tips off at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time and can be seen on the SEC Network.
